Obituary

Obituary for Dorotheos J. "Ted" Cicalis

CICALIS, Dorotheos J. "Ted", of Medford. Passed peacefully at the age of 98 on November 14. Beloved husband of 61 years to Frances Cicalis (Duros) of Medford. Loving father of Gaye Angela Ohanesian and her husband Sahag of Medford, John Cicalis and his wife Peggy of Falmouth, and Perry Cicalis and his wife Julie of Falmouth. Loving grandfather of Stephanie, Jake, Krissy, Teddy, Matthew, Ian, Steven and Leah. Dear brother of the late Charles Cicalis. Also survived by many loving cousins, nieces and nephews. Ted’s parents are the late John K. and Ageliky Cicalis who immigrated from Greece. Born at Maverick Square East Boston, his family moved to Medford where he grew up. He recently received a key to the City.

Family and home were most important to him including extended family - always welcoming them. In earlier years enjoyed golf and boating with his brother and friends, singing and dancing with cousins around the piano. He enjoyed his cars too.

Ted worked for over 36 years at General Electric Co. as a jet engine test technician. He was proud of his work in the Gemini and Apollo Space programs and fighter jets. There is a battery on the moon that his team worked to put there.

Ted was a WWII Army Veteran serving from 1943-45. He was proud to honor veterans on Medford’s Annual Memorial Day by placing a wreath with the Mayor.
